Students at Wright Career College in three states, including Oklahoma are wondering what's next after the school filed for bankruptcy and abruptly closed its campuses Friday. 

The Kansas-based company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.  The petition to liquidate assets estimated liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.

Wright Career College said in an email to students late Thursday that "with our deepest regret" it no longer is able to continue operations.
